As expected the official kick-off to Kapuskasing’s 100th anniversary will be a virtual one.

The Kap 100 committee announced that the ceremony will take place in a Facebook live event on Thursday, Apr. 8 at 6:30 pm due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic public health protocols. Committee members had remained optimistic that the ceremony could have been done at two separate locations in town, but those hopes were dashed.

The event includes a photo exhibit, a tribute to the mayors of the community as well as the early bird draw announcement. April 8th was the day officially the Model Town was incorporated as a community.
